Computing education research (CER) contributes scientific knowledge about the learning and teaching of computer programming and other areas of computing education; develops software tools, pedagogies, and theoretical models to help computing students and teachers; and evaluates such tools, pedagogies, and models empirically.

CER is an interdisciplinary field at the cross-section of computer science, psychology, and education.

We develop and apply educational technology, learning analytics and educational data mining to improve computing education as well as other fields of education.

Research topics: Computing education research, learning analytics, educational technology.
